The Wayside Inn, in Sudbury, Massachusetts, was built in about 1686, and known then as the Red Horse Inn. It has had several names throughout its 300-year history, including Howe Tavern, Wayside Inn and currently Longfellow's Wayside Inn, in an attempt to capitalize on Longfellow's 'Tales of a Wayside Inn'. The last private owner of the Wayside Inn was Henry Ford, who purchased it in 1923. Since the colonial days, it has served travelers on the Boston Post Road. In 1970, was designated a Massachusetts Landmark and listed as a historic property on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. It is reportedly haunted by the ghost of Jerusha Howe, who grew up in the Inn, referred to as the Wayside Inn Ghost. She was known as the 'belle of Sudbury' and she owned the first piano in this historic town. It is said that she still plays it to this day, in the middle of the night.
